Three of our facilities have full data center capabilities with gigabit network connectivity, backup power systems, high performance computing, physical and logical security, and redundancy between the other Kingland facilities and major cloud providers.
All facilities house administrative and software development labs and are linked with video conferencing suites to facilitate collaboration across our locations.
Our 200,000-square-foot headquarters in Clear Lake, Iowa, is the home base for our partner team, administrative staff, and many of our senior engineers and analysts. We also base the corporate jet in Clear Lake so that our staff can be at any client location in the U.S. within 2 to 3 hours, as projects demand.
Located next to the Iowa State University campus, our 75,000-square-foot facility in Ames, Iowa houses one of our data centers, software development labs, and our 150-person data science operation. This operation has provided internships to more than 1,350 Iowa State University graduate and undergraduate students over the last decade — helping us to research and develop next-generation big data analysis, data cleansing, and data augmentation tooling and methods.
Dalian, China, is home to our Asian software development lab. Located in the northeastern peninsula of the Liaoning province of China, the software development lab is housed in the Dalian Software Park, part of the Dalian High-Tech Zone. We have established relationships with a sister university to Iowa State University, Dalian University of Technology, to help us recruit China’s best and brightest minds for both internships and full-time engineering resources.
